30600 - Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (Answered)

Mr George Howarth
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what steps he is taking to improve access to specialist health facilities for people with progressive supranuclear palsy.

George Freeman

There is no specific treatment for progressive supranuclear palsy and management of the condition is symptomatic with appropriate Multi-Disciplinary Team care and support from social care. Often patients are referred on to a specialist in movement disorders either in a hospital or neuroscience centre.
